I'm ashamed to say I haven't seen Neil Young. Seems like I was always traveling to see the Dead when Neil was nearby.

Oh well, I think I'll have another shot or two cause he is staying busy.

I have seen CSN,.....

I guess Pink Floyd would also be on my list, and Peter Gabriel. Saw Genesis without him.

There's just this little problem called $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

i got one crossed off the list this weekend... saw Sonny Landreth on 09/17 and 09/18. WOW! if you don't know about Sonny Landreth, you need to know. he's one of the greatest slide guitar players of all time and invented a style of playing that took slide playing to a whole other level.

The biggest one left on my list is Sir Paul McCartney. And Gilmour and Waters together. Now that Rick's gone, we will never see the full Floyd back together. Saw Roger's Wall Tour last year and it was absolutely incredible. Completely and utterly mind blowing.

He's coming back next year and I will surely be attending at least one more show. Any one who hasn't seen this show, YOU MUST SEE IT! Very pricey (my 5th row floor tickets had a face value of $250 last year), but hands down worth every penny.

A lot of other bands I'd like to see, but none that I would consider on my bucket list. Sadly it is impossible that I ever see some of my favorite musicians.

Huge fan of Elton, saw him with Billy Joel a while back.. Great show if you're into that music

EDIT: didnt realize this thread was so old. lol

Of the possible bucket list artists:

Roger Waters (coming to my town in '12)
Bruce Springsteen
Jeff Beck

Also being older than dirt, the list of people I have seen is pretty long, but the ones that really stand out:

The Eagles (74)
Clapton(75) with Pete Townsend and Keith Moon for Layla encore!!!
Rolling Stones(75)+
Led Zep (77)
Loggins and Messina (76)
Santana (77)+ my first experience with Vitamin A- listening to "Moonflower" LP still gives me flashbacks!!!
Little Feat (78?) (with Lowell George) the most insane scene I've ever been part of
Allman Bros (from '75 on)+
Yes (77)
Steely Dan

I suggest everyone go see the Tedeschi-Trucks Band. Susan Tedeschi has a voice that combines Bonnie Raitt, Janis Joplin, and Aretha Franklin and a band with Dereck Trucks and Oteil and horns. Sweet,sweet,sweet!
Thank You Cody, we are forever Grateful!

Nice List!! and did you happen to attend the Oakland show for Pink Floyd and if you did did you happen to see that little single engine airplane that flew over the coloseum that flashed "THINK PINK" underneath it's wings. That concert was the most all out assault on the senses I've ever had the pleasure to shroom too. : )
